Ways to Partner With Us
Share our Mission by Stepping Forward in Faith with Us
Every day, we are blessed by the generosity of our families, friends and benefactors whose gifts help support us and our ministries while enabling them to share in our ministries. Every gift makes a difference to us. Your gift makes a difference to us. We invite you to consider a donation to us, the Benedictine Sisters of the Annunciation, BMV. We are an IRS approved 501(c)(3) organization and your contribution is tax deductible as defined by law.
Your supportive gift enables us to move forward in our efforts including vocation ministry, continuing formation and education of our sisters, offering programs and retreats through our hospitality center, and other sponsored ministries.
Cash or Check:
Please make checks payable to: Annunciation Monastery, 7520 University Dr., Bismarck, ND, 58504). All gifts are tax-deductible as allowed by law and promptly acknowledged.
We now offer an electronic option for giving. Easy and simple for you, electronic giving allows your weekly or monthly contributions to be transferred electronically from your checking or savings account or your credit card directly to Annunciation Monastery.
Wills & Bequests:
Please remember us when making or revising your will. Our legal name is, “Benedictine Sisters of the Annunciation, B.M.V.”
Life Insurance Policies
Gifts in Honor or in Memory of a Loved One:
A gift to the Sisters is a wonderful way to honor a loved one or to memorialize a loved one as a celebration of their life.
Individual Retirement Accounts
Charitable IRA Rollover (available through February 1, 2013):
If you are age 70 ½ or older, legislation allows you to make charitable contributions of up to $100,000 a year from your qualifying IRA directly to qualified charities without incurring income tax on the money. This is good news if you want to make a charitable gift during your lifetime from your retirement assets, but have been discouraged from doing so because of the income tax penalty.
Congress recognized the issues with a late extension and provided two special transition rules:
1) Qualified distributions made by February 1, 2013, may be counted retroactively for the 2012 tax year.
2) A taxpayer who took a distribution from an IRA in December 2012, may make a contribution to a qualified charity before February 1, 2013, and treat this as a direct transfer.
Charitable Remainder Trusts
Charitable Lead Trusts
NOTE: As with any estate planning decision, consult your legal, financial and tax advisors for advice and information on applicable state and federal laws.
If you would like more information about making a gift, please contact Jill Ackerman, Director of Development and Communications, at (701) 355-8907 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
As we gather together in prayer three times each day, we give thanks to our God and for you.
